As already stated full recoveries are not uncommon. My Dad was a commercial airline pilot for 25 years. In the early 70s he suffered a mini-stroke. He of course thought the worst and was sure he would never fly again. The FAA physicals are extremely thorough. After a week or so in the hospital he was released. In order to get his pilot's license active again he had to go before the FAA Doctor's for a complete physical. He passed! He flew for five more years until it was time to retire.
